Sod turned at site planned for $1m com­mu­nity build­ing

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - News -

THE Lathlain Com­mu­nity Build­ing is one step closer af­ter the first sod was turned at the site last week.

It marked the start of con­struc­tion on the $1 mil­lion fa­cil­ity to house lo­cal com­mu­nity groups, Lathlain Carlisle Play­group, Carlisle Vic­to­ria Park Toy Li­brary and a child and ado­les­cent health clinic.

The build­ing is Zone 6 of the Lathlain Precinct Re­de­vel­op­ment Project, made up of eight sep­a­rate zones which to­gether will form a com­mu­nity sport and recre­ation precinct.

The $70 mil­lion pro- ject in­cludes re­de­vel­op­ment of the Lathlain Place com­mer­cial dis­trict, a new com­mu­nity build­ing and new train­ing and ad­min­is­tra­tion fa­cil­i­ties for the West Coast Ea­gles and Perth Foot­ball Club at Lathlain Park.

Mayor Trevor Vaughan said the project would in­ject life into a pre­vi­ously un­der­utilised area.

“The com­mu­nity build­ing is ser­vic­ing not only the needs of two of the area’s big­gest com­mu­nity groups, but new par­ents and fam­i­lies in the wider com­mu­nity of Lathlain, Carlisle and the Town,” he said.
